The Light house Seventh-day Adventist Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. recently hosted its first iServe event. The vision of Curtis Powell, pastor of Lighthouse, iServe inspires young people engage in Christian service. When young people are engaged in service they can truly make a difference by showing the love of God through serving others, stated Powell.

During the event, young people from the South Florida area churches joined together to give God glory through their many talents- songs, spoken word, choral reading, and instrumental music. Hearts were blessed and spiritual commitments renewed.

Jean-Bart, who served as the keynote speaker for the event challenged the young people to be like the Samaritan in Luke 10 who went out of his way to meet the needs of a stranger.

On the final day of the iServe weekend the youth organized themselves into groups to serve others. Food was distributed to the community, neighbors were visited door to door, and houses were cleaned for the elderly.

When asked what the iServe weekend meant, 16 year old Nicholas Smith stated it meant that as youth we can have a positive impact in our community by giving back through our efforts.

Due to the success of iServe and its impact on the community surrounding Lighthouse, another event is planned for this summer.
